A&R Intern For Music StartupBookmark This
Eshac Entertainment LLC
We are a fast growing Internet startup based in New York City. Eshac is music based social network with the aim to sign Artists, Bands and Groups. Unlike other sites, Eshac is completely driven by a community of Fans and Artists, with contracts awarded to those who earn them. Each Artist uploads a song to their profile and encourages fans to listen to their music, rate them and follow them. Each Artist starts with a Rating Level of 0, which increases with user interactions. When an Artist reaches a Rating Level of 5, they are rewarded with a single song contract. When they reach Rating Level of 10, they receive a full recording contract. This business model allows the fans to have control and drive the future of the music industry.
